When we journey in shame, and fear like a slave, will we ever dream about leading a journey on the same road as a dignitary? Who will do this miracle? What will control us then: distressing memories or trust in God? Gen 50:4-14
Lord, let shame, fear, and distress never snuff out our trust in You who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.
Lord of wonders, God of might only You can create beauty and fruitfulness out of our dark and void past, so we bring our thoughts and pretensions under Your obedience.
